Chisholm ’72—Unbought & Unbossed (2005, 75 minutes) recounts the election of 1972 and the unlikely emergence of Shirley Chisholm, a determined, prim and unapologetically liberal black woman with a powerful message: Exercise the full measure of your citizenship and vote. Featuring archival footage, period music, interviews, and Chisholm’s own commentary, the film is a remarkable recollection of a campaign that broke new ground in politics, and truly reached out to the people—the poor, the young, minorities, gays, women, and other marginalized Americans.
